Falls Village advances Frontier fiber optic offer
FALLS VILLAGE — At a special meeting Tuesday, Dec. 6, the Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to proceed with a proposal from Frontier Communications to provide fiber optic service for the entire town.
The selectmen voted to recommend the deal to the Board of Finance, who will then decide whether to recommend it to town meeting.
There will be an information meeting with Frontier officials Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. at the Emergency Services Center.
First Selectman Henry Todd said the offer is to wire up the entire town for $725,000. About 350 homes will be connected at no cost to the owner; another 268 in outlying areas will incur some cost.
“I personally think this is a fantastic deal we won’t see again,” Todd said.
